And there’s no brand quite like Estée Lauder to bring classic and iconic game changing products into the brave new beauty world. With new skincare and beauty products dropping weekly worldwide, you have to be doing something right to maintain icon status with the same products that have been firm favourites since the 1940s – and that’s exactly what Estée Lauder has managed to do.
Estée Lauder herself started her business in 1946 with four products, a passion for high-touch service and a simple premise that every woman can be beautiful. A woman far ahead of her time, she is quoted as saying “I never dreamed of success, I worked for it.” And with her focus on impeccable, personalised customer service and constant innovation that kept her products ahead of the curve, work she did. From the world’s first serum-like product to the foundation that’s been beloved for generations, these are our top picks.
Nope, not a tin-man costume. This unique foil-backed sheet mask is a clever little innovation designed to make sure you’re not losing half of your precious serum to evaporation. Drenched in the famous Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Multi-Recovery Complex, the PowerFoil backing provides a barrier that ensures all your sheet mask goodness soaks into your skin for maximum efficacy. Perfect for dull, lacklustre skin, or for pre-party glow, this mask is loaded up with the hydrating powers of hyaluronic acid to plump and prep skin. So if you’re short on time or can’t get a salon booking, pop a mask on for that dewy, glowy, lit-from-within and just-had-a-facial look.
Dermatologist tested and non-acnegenic, you’ll look refreshed and revitalised without clogging your pores. And bonus? It’s the perfect base for makeup to slide on seamlessly.
Some things just go together: Paris and Britney, coffee and croissants, Double Wear Stay-In-Place Makeup and this perfect partner powder. Its silky soft, weightless formula is versatile enough to allow you to customise your coverage.
Want to mattify your makeup? Dust Double Wear Matte Powder over your foundation to control oil and shine. Want to increase your coverage?
